Let’s Meet & Get Hydrated!
It’s that time of year again when I get to hit the road. While it’s no Tour of California, it’s still part work / part fun. You can help make it even cooler by checking your schedule to see if you can meet up while I am on the road.
First Stop, Minneapolis (Work)
I am speaking / facilitating at a workshop on building communities based on the experience of building EN into a real, viable, paid online business. I’ll be on a panel with some real heavy hitters (day 1) and then we all hit the ground to do some serious brainstorming for the client on how they can implement similar strategies in their niche (day 2).
Having done a great deal of training during my days in the Peace Corps and then again in Azerbaijan, I am just psyched to get to wear this hat again. I am a bit daunted about being asked to explain Endurance Nation (I think the members are what have built it, not us) but I look forward to being able to share what we have grown together and hope it inspires similarly-minded people to build something cool.
More on the overall project when it’s done, but I hope this will prove to be just the first step towards doing some legitimate consulting. Several readers have asked for help in building a paid niche community, and I am working on how we could do this in a way that we all win. If you want more info on this project, please contact me here.
Second Stop, Austin (Fun)
I am then headed to Austin for 3 full days of epic training. I have a bike rented from Jack & Adams and a bunch of maps, some chamois cream, and ton of energy bars. Three days isn’t a lot of time, but I plan on trying to do as much damage as possible. You’ll be able to follow those updates on Twitter.
I also plan on making it to part of SXSW to check in on some of the social media rockstars that I stalk via Google Reader. If you are going to be there for the conference, or you live near Austin, let me know or or RSVP so we can set a good place for that Friday!
